General Barry McCaffrey

Arguably one of the most outspoken drug czars to date, General Barry McCaffrey served as President Clinton’s second Director of National Drug Control Policy from 1996-2000. When he retired from the Army to join the Administration, he was the most decorated General serving in the United States Army, having been awarded three Purple Heart Medals for wounds received in combat, two Distinguished Service Crosses (the nation’s second highest award for valor), and two Silver Stars for valor.
Upon leaving government service, he served as the Bradley Distinguished Professor of International Security Studies from 2001-2005, and an Adjunct Professor of International Security Studies from 2006-2010 at the United States Military Academy at West Point.
